Coffee Room/Lounge:
Our classrooms can accommodate from two to
twenty students per room. They are bright,
spacious, with large desks, comfortable seating,
and with audio visual equipment. With a
maximum of eight students in one class, you have
plenty of room to spread out and take in the
relaxing atmosphere, and make the most of your

like you have been squeezed into a small room.
We have a kitchen area where coffee, tea and
water are available to students, plus we have a
spacious relaxing lounge and a garden/terrace
where students can relax during their breaks.

A rewarding experience at Oxford ILS
Group classes:
With group classes kept to a maximum of eight
per class, our classes are designed to maximise
the amount of teacher-student time. Students
find that their language skills are developed
rapidly as they are encouraged to actively
participate in class. They benefit from the high
level of contact with the teacher, a flexible
approach, and a high degree of personalisation,
delivered in a comfortable and relaxing
environment.
Individual classes:
Students may prefer to opt for a one-to-one
programme of study. This offers the student a
course which is designed for the specific
requirements of the individual learner. Classes
are customised and focused on a student’s
specific objectives and problem areas. This is an
accelerated way of learning and highly beneficial
to the student, especially for English exam
preparation and English for Specific Purposes.
Our students:
The School welcomes people of all backgrounds
and nationalities, and it is suitable for those who
want to learn English fast, in a friendly and
relaxed atmosphere. The minimum age for adult
courses is 16 and there is no maximum age. To
date we have welcomed students from at least
25 different countries.
Our teachers:
We believe that our teachers are our greatest
strength. They are passionate about teaching and
have years of experience in teaching General
English, Business English, English for exam
preparation and English for Specific Purposes. At
Oxford ILS we use a variety of teaching methods,
paying careful attention to students’ individual
needs and learning styles. The lessons are very
energetic and interactive with interesting and
topical subjects.
Our teachers have lot of experience and
professional qualifications such as Cambridge
CELTA, Trinity College Certificate or Diploma in
TESOL, or have other professional qualifications
in various other subjects (MA, MSc, MBA and
Technology), and have a diverse professional
background, having worked in industry and
business environments. This extended wealth of
knowledge and experience allows our teachers to
provide students with real-life class activities to
complement the learning experience and, if
required, business and commercial level English.
"I really enjoy being a student at Oxford
ILS. Currently I'm taking private classes to prepare
for the CAE exam. Studying in this school is a great
experience. I have improved quite a lot, above all my
speaking skills. The programme is great, includes
everything from listening, reading to speaking and
expansion of vocabulary. Without doubt I strongly
recommend this school to people who are looking for
personal and private lessons."

"I like the classes because they are small - so the
teacher can pay more attention to those parts you
don't understand or are difficult for you. The
teachers are excellent - they will answer or tell you
things you can hardly find in a book."

city. The classes are very energising and students
are given homework after each lesson to
continue their learning experience at home.

The aim of the class is to improve students’
confidence in speaking. By following a
communicative approach, the emphasis is on
interaction, language fluency and accuracy. Each

Cambridge ESOL certificates are awarded by a
department of the world renowned University of
Cambridge. Preparing for a Cambridge certificate
can help students achieve their goals for study,
work and life. The exams focus on testing
learners’ speaking, writing, use of English,
reading and listening. The results are linked to
the Common European Framework of References
for Languages as follows:
First Certificate in English (FCE) - Level B2
FCE is an upper-intermediate level qualification.
It is recognised globally and it proves that you can
use every day spoken and written English for
work and study purposes.
Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) - Level C1
CAE is an internationally recognised exam for
advanced level of English. Passing CAE
demonstrates a high-level of language skills
needed for success in study and work. Many top
colleges, universities and places of work accept
CAE.
Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) - Level
C2
CPE is a recognised exam accepted by thousands
of leading businesses and educational institutions
worldwide. It proves you have achieved an
extremely high level in English, and can
communicate with fluency and sophistication
similar to a native speaker.
“The CAE classes are a great source of knowledge
related to speaking, writing, listening, etc. Furthermore,
the teacher´s performance is outstanding. He always
does his best in terms of learning materials. In addition
to this, during the classes not only are we using the
book, but we also use a wide range of resources such
as the radio, computer, with the aim of making use
of the internet in order to obtain more useful material
about the language. From my point of view, I would
strongly recommend these classes to everyone, because
in my case, it has been a really useful experience.”

Accommodation in Oxford
At Oxford ILS we recognise that as individuals, or
groups, the accommodation requirements of
students are important and vary greatly. So we
offer a number of options to suit your needs.
These rooms are offered at reasonable prices, are
an unforgettable experience, and an alternative
to local hotels. The minimum student age to
book this option is 18 years old.
Homestay:
The popular choice of most students is Homestay.
Students stay with a local English speaking family
in Oxford, not too far from the School. Students
will typically have a single room, with a study
desk. Double rooms or rooms with en-suite
facilities are available on special request.
Each Homestay provider is selected to a very high
standard, and they are welcoming and happy to
receive and host our students. Staying in a
Homestay provider extends the learning
experience after the School closes.

breakfast and an evening meal on weekdays, and
also breakfast, a light lunch and an evening meal
on weekends. Internet (Wi-Fi/LAN) is also
available to students at the Homestay provider.
However, students must provide their own
equipment, e.g. laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
University/College Rooms:
During the holiday periods, the University of
Oxford rent student study rooms on a Bed and
Breakfast basis. This is a unique opportunity for
students to stay in University rooms and
experience a part of the University’s history.
Oxford ILS can make the necessary arrangements
for visiting students to stay in these study rooms,
subject to availability. Please contact us for
further details.
Hotels and Bed and Breakfast:
Oxford ILS recognises that some students may
prefer to stay in a local hotel or B&B. We can
